Synopsis

The Black Dog Band 16/Sapphire by Harriet Goodwin

Annie, George and Jed are on a school camping trip, and their team hasn't been doing very well in the activities they've been set. There is one final task - an orienteering exercise in the nearby woods - and they're determined to win. But will their differences in opinion hold them back, and what is the howl they've heard deep in the woods? * Sapphire/Band 16 books offer longer reads to develop children's sustained engagement with texts and are more complex syntactically. * Text type: A mystery story * Curriculum links: Citizenship
